across a couple of short trails in the Su Valley that my wife or
I hadn't skied before.
The first one
was a trail from the K'esugi Ken campground at Milepost 135 on
the Parks Highway to the Lower Troublesome Creek pull-out.
Looks like a park ranger with a wide track snowmobile packed
this trail from the K'esugi Ken Campground/ Curry Ridge Trail to
Lower Troublesome Creek and back. The trail had flagging
all the way, so it is apparently an established route and not
just a random snowmobile track. I messed up with my phone
and had the GPS turned off. So no GAIA route info.
And the route was not marked on the trail maps at the
campground. My guess is that the trail is about 5 miles
one way. The trail skied nicely.
skiing the X-Y Lake Trails in Talkeetna, I noticed a trail
called the "Erratic Loop" had been dragged. I skied this
trail and checked out the big 30 foot tall(?) glacial erratic it
goes by. Cool trail.
